About this Episode

Amazon's recent purchase of MGM has made the tech giant a partner with Eon—the studio behind the James Bond film franchise, and subsequently sent shockwaves through the fan community. As speculation about a potential “Bond Universe” continues to grow, Mad Unreal asks: does all of this attention (and worry) prove that Bond is the most unique and important franchise in cinema? Join us as we dive into 007’s past and potential future.

Mad Unreal focuses on the films and characters we find beautifully unreal, from Marvel to Star Wars, James Bond, BIPOC heroes, super women, and dope villains. Hosted by Arthur Turnbull and Isaac Perry, you can find the show on iTunes, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify.
